Adding to an already impressive variety, Indonesian winery TWO Islands has released its brand new sparkling Shiraz, for a total of 10 varietals in its collection.
TWO Islands features wines vinified here in Bali using fine grapes from South Australia. The new Sparkling Shiraz is made using grapes from their own vineyards in Padthaway and the Barossa Valley, resulting in a delightful modern Australian wine. Winemaker James Kalleske and his team at the helm of the 29-year-old winery have worked on the wine to create something truly special. The Sparkling Shiraz was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months, before undergoing a 12-month secondary bottle fermentation using the French ‘Méthode Traditionelle’, which gives it its delicate bubbles. The result is a rich and fruity sparkling wine, suited to the climate here in Bali.
For those who know their wines, the Sparkling Shiraz is medium bodied, with warming spice notes, raspberry compote, vanilla custard, mint leaves on the aromas; and ripe berries, creamy mousse, fresh acidity, light but balanced sweetness on the palate. This wine is complex, fruity and slightly sweet, as this classic Australian wine should be. The wine is said to go perfectly with: cheeses, roast duck breast, black pepper beef, blueberry Danish and chocolate brownies!
Founded by Ida Bagus Rai Budarsa, the man behind sister brand, Hatten Wines, TWO Islands began production in 2007 with just four wines. The goal was to offer a constant supply of quality imported products at better value than heavily taxed imported alternatives. “This new wine is exceptional in taste and quality,” shares IB. Rai Budarsa. “The demand for a quality sparkling wine at an affordable price encouraged us to develop this wine. Our priority is to make sure we source the best grapes from South Australia and ensure our wine is exceptional in every respect,” adds the founder.
